Big-wave surfer Garrett McNamara already has the record for surfing the biggest wave ever ridden -- a 78-foot beast at Nazaré, Portugal, in 2011. But on Monday, Jan. 28, he rode this massive wave at Nazaré, prompting SurferToday.com to wonder whether he not only broke his own world record but dropped into a 100-foot wave. (Or, as one Portuguese publication so eloquently put it, "Garrett McNamara volta a surfar montanha de água na Nazaré.")
McNamara wrote on Twitter Monday, "Thank you for all your support. It means the world to me. Today was an awesome day and so fun to be out there..

I have surfed all my life all over the place, if I saw a wave THAT big I would vomit and run. Most of the really large waves are tow in surfing , which is getting pulled into the wave with a jet ski. I highly recommend surfing,but on smaller head high waves to begin with and the traveling is great and most people that can surf really well ,generally dont talk about it alot ,except to other surfers. Kinda like how most really good musicians dont brag about it. Surfing can be discouraging at first and not everyone can do it, like singing, thats what boogie boards are for. Who knows if thats a world record wave, its impossible to measure and its quite common to see bad arses like Laird hamilton charging 60 footers.
